Here at JKWrestling we pride ourselves on providing an informed opinion on all of the elements of what make up the sport (entertainment) that we all know and love. As a collective, we weren’t so hyped regarding WWE Battleground’s potential to be a good pay per view, but at least one member of the team was convinced that the show was worth the money and that member was me. Here’s why:

For all intents and purposes, Alex Wright should’ve been a huge star in WCW. In the end, he not only fell flat of expectations, but suffered from the worst thing a professional wrestler could ever suffer from: fan indifference. It’s often said that in the professional wrestling business, you can be loved or be hated and either one is fine. But if the fans don’t care about you, that’s death. We’ve reached that stage with many people and Alex Wright was one of them a long time ago.
Y2J is back and this week grabbed a huge victory over Bray Wyatt on pay per view. The legendary superstar was originally seen as nothing more than a stumbling block for Bray to destroy en-route to a main event push, but Jericho pulled a huge victory out of the bag to reassert himself in to the main event picture instead, making him this week’s Star of the Week.
The JKWrestling Match of the Week July 14-21, 2014: The Usos def. Erick Rowan & Luke Harper of the Wyatt Family in a 2 out of 3 Falls Match for the Tag Team Championships at WWE Battleground
The Usos and The Wyatt Family were put in the opening spot of this month’s WWE Battleground pay per view with the opportunity to deliver a 30 minute 2 out of 3 falls match to the best of their ability and they didn’t disappoint. With twists and turns to the psychology of the match occurring regularly and each member of the match delivering above and beyond their usual high standard, these four young and hungry superstars elevated each other to a standard that could have this match make the pay per view match of the year list, making it truly deserving of this week’s Match of the Week award.

No amount of blabbing I do on this site will convince the haters, and I’ve long come to accept that some people just irrationally hate TNA, but the simple fact is they’ve been on a hell of a roll lately. The last few shows that were taped in Bethlehem PA were great. Lively crowds, solid matches, and a clear effort to elevate young talent means that TNA has really found its groove. For the next few weeks, we’ll be seeing what was taped in New York City in June, and based how raucous I know my hometown can be, I have a feeling it won’t disappoint.
At Battleground 2013 Cody Rhodes & Goldust won their WWE careers back in the JKWrestling Magazine’s Pay Per View Match of the Year versus The Shield.

Last week’s NXT was particularly good. This week’s? Not as much. Still entertaining, but at a lower level, which is fine. They can’t all be home runs, right? It should also be noted that they did a new round of tapings this past week so any tiredness or ring fatigue that the talent was facing should be all gone within the next episode or two as they start over after a 3-4 week layoff.

When Maven eliminated the Undertaker at the Royal Rumble to secure himself the victory of the Royal Rumble match, immediately following his elimination, Undertaker would pull Maven from the ring and beat him until he could no longer move. Undertaker was humiliated and took all of his frustration out of Maven, demanding respect from the man as well as everyone else who had the opportunity to be in his presence.
The Rock was amused by the event, and took the time to share his jokes and comments with WWF announcer Coach. Furious, Undertaker would assault The Rock and cost him the Undisputed Championship against Chris Jericho. Rock would return the favour and cost Undertaker his Hardcore Championship to no other than Maven. But even so, The Rock did not consider himself and Undertaker even. Not by a long shot. In retaliation, Undertaker would tombstone The Rock on top of a limousine.
Undertaker’s threats would not stop with the Rock, just before their match, Ric Flair who was discussing the return of the NOW, would be interrupted by the Undertaker claiming Flair should be worried about his own back rather than the NWO’s, generating more enemies for himself as well as just The Rock. However, with his sights solely on the Rock, they would head into a match with more than titles and victory on their mind but respect and vengeance.
